“Since I was a little girl I remember our art class teacher always told us:
“The artist is not just a talented person; it is also a hard worker, the workaholic. To become a real artist you should work every day, every minute, even when you do not have a pencil and paper on you. You must be able to see!”

In my paintings I express my feelings, my mood and my impressions.
And I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m still learning to see.

Most of my artworks are oil paintings. Sometimes I use swarovsky crystals and gold/silver leaves.”
